A First Look at “The Bachelor” Galavis Handing Out Roses

Here’s your chance to get a first look at the first Latino Bachelor, Juan Pablo Galavis

TV Guide is offering a sneak peek of the new season of ABC‘s The Bachelor with the 32-year-old Venezuelan American former soccer star and one-time Bachelorette suitor giving the first impression rose to one beauty after meeting 27 of them, but the pressure was not only on him.

Not all of the women had the chance to personally connect with Galavis in such a short period of time. Contestant Lauren H. questioned the other women who had time with him.

“You have one night, and one night only to impress,” one contestant told her. Lauren H., who is still recovering from a broken engagement, then broke down in tears because she was out of her comfort zone and thought that maybe she was not quite ready to compete for love.

Among those who made impressive entrance were a music composer who arrived on a piano bike, a nurse who let him listen to her heart through a stethoscope, a sexy dancer who showed her salsa moves, and a girl who brought her dog.

“I hate hurting people,” Galavis told TorontoSun. “But at the same time, you have to take the risk of meeting people – in this case, 27 – and I knew that they knew a little bit about me. It’s intimidating, having 27 women looking at you like a piece of something. But you know, it’s funny, too.”

The Bachelor returns with a two-night premiere event starting on Sunday, January 5 at 8:00 pm ET. The season premiere on Monday will see all 27 women meeting Galavis for the first time.
